Our first aim is to brush up on the technical knowledge required in the related areas.
1. Robot: input-output variables of the given system, to study the matlab files provided, non-linearities, friction model, coupled phenomena in the system. 2. System Identification: to derive system model using two point method, to derive system model using three point method
In the open loop method, we will input a white noise of small power into the four controlled motors of the system and measure the corresponding output response. Using the frf of the input and output, we will find out the cross power spectral density on the input and the output using Matlab command cpsd.m. Then, we will calculate the auto power spectral density of the input using Matlab command psd.m (or spectrum.m). Then by using the formula H(f)=Syu(f)/Suu(f) we will arrive at the frf of the plant.This can be easily converted into a transfer function by using the Matlab command tfestimate.m. In the closed loop method, first a stabilizing controller will be build using SHAPE-IT for the calculated transfer function from the direct open loop method. Then closed loop measurements will be made where we inject white noise into the system and calculate the sensitivity and the process sensitivity. The plant frf is then calculated by using the above formula.
Once we have derived the model, response of the system in terms of bandwidth, time response, and stability margins will be noted. The same controller will then be plugged into the hardware to check if the response is same. A similar response would mean that the derived model of the plant is accurate.
